MALI – Colonel Abdoulaye Maïga brings his truths to the UN forum

Abdoulaye Maiga, Prime Minister of the Republic of Mali,

At this 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, the Malian Prime Minister, in front of the UN gallery, took out the sulphateuse. Continuous shooting on Emmanuel Macron, Alassane Ouattara, Umaro Sissoko Embalo, Antonio Guterres, Mohamed Bazoum. His speech, which went viral, made the rounds of social networks on Saturday, September 24. He reminded us of a certain “Thomas Sankara”.

The atmosphere was electric this Saturday, September 24 in the great hall of the United Nations General Assembly in New York. Colonel Abdoulaye Maïga, Prime Minister of Mali in a singular speech, expressed his “deep disagreement” to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres following his “recent media release.” He accuses him of “taking a stand” in “a bilateral and judicial matter” between two brother countries. He has spiked in Abidjan, Paris and ECOWAS. There has been no round of observation. Dressed in a richly embroidered white bazin, he comes back to an arm-wrestling between Abidjan and Bamako. The case of the “46 Ivorians” detained in Mali.

Despite the denials of the Ivorian authorities, Bamako remains straight in his boots: they are «mercenaries» who came to Mali by concealing «their identity by putting on their passport that they were painters or masons. And it is in the fateful destiny to destabilize the country. If it is not possible in Lisbon or elsewhere, it will not be possible in Bamako,” he said. It was not under the cover of MINUSMA that these men were in Mali. However, the Secretary of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, spoke earlier on what can be called the “Case of the 49”. He is working for a release, because according to him, they are “illegally” detained in Mali. The African authorities, such as President-in-Office of ECOWAS Umaru Sissoco Embaló, President of Guinea Bissau and President of Niger Mohamed Bazoum, who had succeeded him in the gallery, went in the same direction as the Secretary of the United Nations. Colonel Abdoulaye Maïga responded to Umaro Sissoco Embalo by saying that there is a “principle of subsidiarity” between ECOWAS and the UN and “not a principle of mimicry”.

In the UN gallery, Colonel Abdoulaye Maïga denounced “the negative external influences” that are undermining the stability of his country, Mali. In addition, he described France as a “junta” and as having “stabbed him in the back” when the latter unilaterally withdrew from the barkane force. He criticizes this duplicity of France, which, according to him, would arm jihadists behind the scenes. He does not stop there. It goes so far as to say that “The French authorities […] have turned into a junta in the service of obscurantism”. He states that France is still in a “neocolonial, condescending, paternalistic and revanchist practice”. He accuses France of having violated Malian airspace more than fifty times. And more importantly, it brings “intelligence, weapons and ammunition to terrorist groups”. Silence in the room. He therefore calls for the personal involvement of UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in the Security Council, so that Mali’s complaint against France may succeed.

At the end of his speech, Colonel Maïga reaffirmed that the Malian authorities are engaged in a political and institutional reform. The good news is that they promise to hold elections and fight terrorism. Will these reforms produce the desired results?
